This book is an attempt to give a simple and direct account of the Non-Euclidean Geometry, and one which presupposes but little knowledge of Mathematics. The first three chapters assume a knowledge of only Plane and Solid Geometry and Trigonometry, and the entire book can be read by one who has taken the mathematical courses commonly given in our colleges.

The parallel postulate is the only distinctive characteristic of Euclid. To pronounce upon its validity and general philosophical significance without endeavoring to know what Non-Euclideans have done would be an inexcusable blunder ...

These notes are intended as a relatively quick introduction to hyperbolic geometry. They review the wonderful history of non-Euclidean geometry. They develop a number of the properties that are particularly important in topology and group theory.

In this book the author has attempted to treat the Elements of Non-Euclidean Plane Geometry and Trigonometry in such a way as to prove useful to teachers of Elementary Geometry in schools and colleges. Hyperbolic and elliptic geometry are covered.
